Herald Sun Form Guide : August 14th 2009
+ 48 Herald Sun, Friday, August 14, 2009 + Terang Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7. TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 Club Membership 1.21 2180m. $5000.

The Peter Manning trained 4yo obviously has ability and is worth following. CALM BAY (9) has been beaten narrowly twice in recent times and is capable of sprinting to the line quickly with the right trail forward so he is not without a chance against this line up. SOLANA (4) trailed the leader and was held up for a run at a vital stage before switching back to the sprint lane when fourth at Terang on Sunday. This is a race of similar quality and she rates as an each way chance. KEYSTONE CROWN (8) is a place chance despite an awkward draw while PANORAMA WEALTH (3) (Panorama – Gabby Wealth) is a first starter for trainer David Sweatman that has been unplaced in two recent trial efforts at Terang. SELECTIONS: UNDENIED (10), Calm Bay (9), Solana (4), Keystone Crown (8) RATINGS: 10/ 4,9/ 8/ 3? 12 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 4,8,9,10,12 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 12 309 DOCTOR PRIDE Michelle Manning Fr 8.00 2 Reichas Stores 3YO 1.56 1680m. $5000. 3yo 3A0 Only RBD Mobile 1 40177 MEET THE PRESIDENT 2 56897 RUFFIANO (Em1) 3 50s27 DAVIDROY 4 2 NOMIND 5 7s235 THREE BLADES 6 s2914 FREDDY FRANCO 7 75380 KALIANTHI Craig’s call: THREE BLADES (5) was placed in both heat and final of the Grand Slam series then found a heat of the Breeders Crown too tough for him last outing. He possesses gate speed and will find this assignment much easier so he will take beating. NOMIND (4) endured a tough run and ran a huge race for second to The Evangelist in a 1.58.6 mile at Horsham when on debut. He has a promising future and is clearly the danger to THREE BLADES (5). FREDDY FRANCO (6) has a good turn of speed and picked up ground from last at his latest fourth. He picked up the runaway leader Ombre Operateur to win at Bendigo prior and rates as an each way chance. CAPTAIN COURAGE (9) has been racing consistently at Globe Derby Park and is a minor place hope in the event. SELECTIONS: THREE BLADES (5), Nomind (4), Freddy Franco (6), Captain Courage (9) RATINGS: 5/ 4/ 6/ 1,8,9 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi First Four 4,5/ 4,5,6/ 1,4,5,6,8,9/ 1,4,5,6,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 41.66%) Second Line 8 65062 JUSTA JEM LOMBO 9 44534 CAPTAIN COURAGE 10 34445 SILENT PREDATOR 11 3377s NOAHRILEY 12 7 KAI STAR FELLA Kerryn Manning Fr 9.00 Jayson Finnis (C) Fr 26.00 Anne-Maree Conroy Fr 13.00 Kevin Brough Fr 34.00 Geoff Webster Fr 11.00 3 Bruckner & Assoc. 2.31 2180m. $5000.

He is a handy 3yo pacer and should take beating against this line up. TOTAL ASSET (7) has been outclassed at her past two starts in Breeders Crown events and is likely to find this assignment much easier. 11 62906 CHEQUERS GIRL Anne-Maree Conroy Fr 5.50 Matthew Craven Fr 4.00 Shirley Drake Fr 26.00 John Devine Fr 21.00 Greg Sugars Fr 34.00 Michael Stanley Fr 34.00 Philip Duffy Fr 26.00 Brent Howard Fr 51.00 Ross Payne Fr ★2.70 Gerard Steenhuis Fr 3.20 Kerryn Manning Fr 51.00 Greg Sugars Fr 21.00 Jim Barker Fr Rod Barker Fr 26.00 Aaron Dunn Fr 3.50 Brett Holloway Fr ★2.70 Rodney Petroff Fr 4.50 John Justice Fr 34.00 Brendan Said Fr 7.00 Ashley Matthews Fr 7.00 Kerryn Manning Fr ★2.60 Rod Barker Fr 34.00 Craig Rail’s specials: BEST BET: BEST VALUE: HARNESS RACING TODAY Harold Park Muckinbar Lady (Race 6, No. 7) River Breeze (Race 5, No. 10) BEST ROUGHIE: Jilliby Chime (Race 8, No. 1) Rail’s $50 Flexi Quaddie for 41.66% 2,4,8,11,12/ 1,2,3,8,9,10/ 5,7/ 3,9 5 Barastoc Pace 1 00266 CHICAGOMATE 2 9s535 DEVILSLIVEINSIDE 3 28348 POWERFUL TYCOON 4 77734 VILLAGE MIRACLE 5 06466 TUAPEKA LIFE NZ 6 0709s BONUS DEAL 7 09878 COBALT BEACH Second Line 8 223s5 SUNSHINES GLORY 9 41262 BLACKALL LAD 10 90113 RIVER BREEZE 3.43 Q2 1680m. $5000.

He over-raced badly but still found the line well in that effort and he should be suited to the sprint distance. POWERFUL TYCOON (3) possesses early pace and will appreciate a drop in class on his latest efforts. His latest victory was at Terang in April so he has conditions to suit him here. DEVILSLIVEINSIDE (2) has worked to the line nicely at his past two attempts and gets into this race with a concession claim so he is worth thought on an each way basis. BLACKALL LAD (9) finished strongly when second to Just Like Sid on Sunday and is capable of going one better from his trailing draw. SELECTIONS: RIVER BREEZE (10), Powerful Tycoon (3), Devilsliveinside (2), Blackall Lad (9) RATINGS: 10/ 2,3,9/ 1,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 1,2,3,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 16.66%) 6 Terang Crt Store 4.23 2180m. $5000.

She charged home to beat Mach Twain at Horsham last outing and will be suited by the small field of eight runners. RADICAL ASSASSIN (5) has won six of his nine starts and is a fast beginner from the mobile. He finished off in a fast final quarter of 28.7 seconds after racing on the outside of the leader last time so he is a winning chance again. MATAI CULLEN (1) finished solidly to beat an easier line up at Geelong last outing. He is ideally drawn so he could show up again despite rising in class. LORD RODDICK (6) is a one paced type, which set up an even tempo throughout when second to You Lazy Boy at Bendigo. He is widely drawn but could run into a place. SELECTIONS: MUCKINBAR LADY (7), Radical Assassin (5), Matai Cullen (1), Lord Roddick (6) RATINGS: 7/ 5/ 1,6,8 SUGGESTED BET: MUCKINBAR LADY (7) to win 7 Life Members Pace 5.03 2180m. $5000.

He won three races in succession at the start of his campaign and has the speed to make his presence felt in this event. MAJOR CULLEN (4) had little luck on his debut effort and is a possible improver. SELECTIONS: TAB ONE (6), Total Asset (7), Viareggio (10), Major Cullen (4) RATINGS: 6/ 7,10/ 4/ 9,11 SUGGESTED BET: TAB ONE (6) to win VIAREGGIO 4 Talisman Floats 2 0s6s1 GAME OF COURAGE NZ 3 08665 JANSZOON 4 34433 WEERROOK JET 5 18s96 PERFECT PETER 6 s3255 JEWEL OF DESTINY 7 38502 MISS JULES Second Line 8 445s2 ONE BAD DUDE 9 56434 TRES HOMBRES NZ 10 46823 DEVIL FISH 11 s2181 INDI ROSE NZ 12 4s184 ROMAN WAY 3.06 Q1 2180m. $5000. 3yo 3A0 To 3A1 PBD Mobile Final 1 9s906 DESIGNATED DRIVER Robin Leonard Fr 34.00 Matthew Craven Fr ★3.20 Mark Steenhuis Fr 34.00 Barry Beasley Fr 15.00 Scratched Fr — Kevin Brough Fr 34.00 Grant Campbell Fr 13.00 + Craig’s call: INDI ROSE (11) pushed forward to race without cover and held off the challenge of MISS JULES (7) to win her heat of this series on Sunday. She is just as effective when coming from off the pace and is a winning chance again. ROMAN WAY (12) had little luck when fourth ($1-90 fav) in his heat effort as he raced out three wide from the 1400m. He has ability and must be respected. GAME OF COURAGE (2) sprinted quickly from last to win his heat over ONE BAD DUDE (8), which raced without cover throughout. He should be fitter from that effort and is better drawn so he must be considered as a winning chance again. SELECTIONS: INDI ROSE (11), Roman Way (12), Game Of Courage (2), One Bad Dude (8) RATINGS: 11,12/ 2,4,8/ 10 SUGGESTED BET: Kerryn Manning Fr 4.50 Brendan Mahncke Fr 13.00 Jayson Finnis (C) Fr 15.00 Michael Bellman Fr ★3.20 Anthony O’Connor Fr 9.00 2,4,8,10,11,12 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) Flexi Trifecta 2,11,12/ 2,4,8,10,11,12/ Craig’s call: TSUNAMI LOMBO (3) has been placed in all of his eight starts for the season and followed an all of the way win at Tabcorp Park with a “death seat” second to Our Cullen in handy time at Geelong. He is nicely drawn and should prove hard to beat again. BREENYS TROUBLE (9) didn’t run to the line as expected when eighth to BIDDYS STAR (1) but was placed at his previous eight attempts so he is worth another chance. OK TOBAGO (2) seemingly had his chance in the straight when outgunned by Sharman ($1-40 fav) last week but has a good turn of speed and will be suited by his nice draw. SIRNELSON OF ASCOT (7) is racing in good form and should be finding the line strongly if he gains the right luck in running. SELECTIONS: TSUNAMI LOMBO (3), Breenys Trouble (9), Ok Tobago (2), Sirnelson Of Ascot (7) RATINGS: 3/ 2,7,9/ 1/ 4 SUGGESTED BET: TSUNAMI LOMBO (3) to win 8 Terang Co-Op Final 5.38 1680m. $5000. 4yo & Up C0 Only RBD Mobile Final 1 67s53 JILLIBY CHIME 2 57877 STOPNTHINK 3 02354 WOR JACKIE 7 35242 TASHA THE BASHA Second Line 8 7s703 UNE DE MAI (TR) 9 57925 SERENGETI STORM 10 55755 LEGENDARY STATUS 11 42742 PRINCE HANA 12 14386 STYLISH EMBRACE Brendan Mahncke Fr 7.00 Scratched Fr — 4 35344 KEEPER OF THE FIRE Nicholas Lenehan (C) Fr 11.00 5 44751 SAPPHIRE ISLAND 6 s4656 ON THE DRIP Ashley Matthews Fr 5.50 Michael Stanley Fr ★3.50 Grant Campbell Fr 26.00 Matt Clarke Fr 5.50 Kerryn Manning Fr 5.00 Clare McDowall (C) Fr 21.00 Kevin Brough Fr 26.00 Shirley Drake Fr 11.00 Brent Howard Fr 21.00 Craig’s call: TASHA THE BASHA (7) finished solidly from last when a nose second to SAPPHIRE ISLAND (5) in her heat of this series and is capable of going one better despite another poor draw. SAPPHIRE ISLAND (5) turned the final corner about a length in front of TASHA THE BASHA (7) and just held her off in the latter stages to win her heat. She does possess gate speed and might be able to settle in front of TASHA THE BASHA (7) again this afternoon. KEEPER OF THE FIRE (4) was carted out to last by a tiring runner and ran to the line strongly for an eye-catching fourth to The Wingman last week. He is much better drawn for this assignment and should give a bold showing. PRINCE HANA (11) was held up for a run at a vital stage and worked home nicely for second to The Wingman last outing. He is a short course specialist and is nearing a win against this class. SELECTIONS: TASHA THE BASHA (7), Sapphire Island (5), Keeper Of The Fire (4), Prince Hana (11) RATINGS: 7/ 4,5/ 11/ 1/ 3,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,5,7/ 4,5,7,11/ 1,3,4,5,7,8,11 (Cost $20, which gives 37.03%) Sprint Lane: No Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7.

This is a massive drop in class and she will prove very hard to beat despite a wide draw on the front line. DOUGS PLACE (4) led throughout to win two starts back then sprinted sharply to hit the lead on the home turn before fading badly in the final 50m on Friday night. He is nicely drawn over the sprint distance and is worth another chance. SNAZZY SHANNON (2) is racing in great form on the provincial circuit having won three of his past four starts. He possesses good gate speed and is capable of taking the next step forward. JONELL SULLIVAN (1) trailed the leader and was placed at big odds last week. He is drawn to receive a similar trail here so is a place chance again. SELECTIONS: GAME SAFIN (6), Dougs Place (4), Snazzy Shannon (2), Jonell Sullivan (1) SUGGESTED BET: GAME SAFIN (6) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,6/ 1,2,4,5,6/ 1,2,4,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 62.50%) 2 Pace 1 33852 JULIUS APOLLO 2 47057 DENS BLUE BEEJAY 3 08s21 JIMMY COWAN NZ 4 66394 GO BOOM NZ 5 12s12 FAST STICKS NZ 6 81498 DEADLY HANDSOME NZ 7 97469 WALK OF LIFE NZ Second Line 8 23589 BURRABADINE 9 59111 ACE KRIDEN 10 55852 SWEET AS REIGN 7.00 1760m. $14000.

He has been racing very consistently in recent times and looks to be a strong winning chance from the pole position. ACE KRIDEN (9) led throughout to complete three straight victories at Harold Park last week. He drops back to a second line draw now but should prove hard to beat again. JIMMY COWAN (3) led throughout to defeat Min Min Lights at Menangle last week. This race is a little tougher but he is drawn to be prominent and he should give a bold showing. FAST STICKS (5) finished nicely and was beaten narrowly by the smart pacer Bombora Lombo at Harold Park three starts back so he is worth consideration. SELECTIONS: JULIUS APOLLO (1), Ace Kriden (9), Jimmy Cowan (3), Fast Sticks (5) SUGGESTED BET: JULIUS APOLLO (1) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,3,9/ 1,2,3,5,9/ 1,2,3,4,5,6,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 27.77%) 3 Pace 1 46s11 COMET PRINCE 2 24s75 PIN NZ 3 21123 JACKSON GRANT 4 7s282 GOTASHOTAWAY 5 41324 THE SCORPION KING 6 5s461 FRANCO NESTER NZ 7 65734 PANORAMA SWING Second Line 8 22416 LIVE TO LAUGH 7.30 2160m. $16000.

He has been placed at his past twelve attempts and will be suited to being drawn out in the open here. FRANCO NESTER (6) followed two luckless efforts at Harold Park with an all of the way victory against similar grade last outing. He is not as well drawn but must be respected. PIN (2) will be fitter for his two starts back from a spell and races best when he is close to the pace so an improved effort would not surprise. LIVE TO LAUGH (8) disappointed last time but won a race of similar standard prior and is capable of a better performance. COMET PRINCE (1) is rising in class on his latest Newcastle victory but is drawn to receive every chance and GOTASHOTAWAY (4), which finished quickly last week, is a minor place hope in the event.

He has won 7 of his 11 starts and will prove hard to beat again. SUPER SEA (10) ran a top race behind the smart 3yo pacer Intoxicated last week and has a good record. He is terribly drawn but should go well. MISS RUSTIC ROSE (2) led throughout to win at Harold Park last week and has claims again despite rising in class. MY BRAVADO (5) finished fast out wide on the track when an eye-catching fourth at Menangle last outing and is worth a place ticket. EIGHTHSTREET (1) and STEEL BURG (9) are minor place hopes from their inside draw.

She is widely drawn but is one of the leading chances in this event. MAUDIE (6) finished strongly for second to BARA INGRID (4) two starts back then made up ground for fourth to Genuwine last week. She is a strong mare with a consistent record and must be respected against this line up. ONEDINS POCKETGIRL (2) led throughout and never looked like being beaten last week. She is drawn to lead again and should take catching despite meeting tougher opposition. The fast beginner IMPOVERISHED (3) and BARA INGRID (4) both are capable of showing up without surprising.

She is nicely drawn and should run forward race. IM A HAPPY GIRL (7) has won three of her four starts with her only defeat being in the Des McQueen Classic at Moonee Valley. She is widely drawn but has plenty of ability and is one of the leading chances. TESSACE (8) is the class runner of the field having won heats of both the Sires Stakes and Breeders Challenge but she couldn’t have drawn worse than the inside of the second line. She was unplaced in the final both of those Group One events and took on the colts and geldings last time so she is racing better than her form reads. NATURAL ACE (2) led and was gunned down by the smart pacer Lots More Grins at Newcastle last week. SELECTIONS: STUNNIN GIRL (4), Im A Happy Girl (7), Tessace (8), Natural Ace (2) SUGGESTED BET: STUNNIN GIRL (4) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,7,8/ 2,4,7,8,9/ 2,4,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 55.55%) 7 3YO Pace 1 6s319 SHE BETALOOSEN UP 2 57176 CHLOE SHANNON 3 45448 CHAMPION MELODY 4 2278f PJAYSPARTY 5 36311 DUCHESS OF DUBAI 6 62121 DIGTHEBOY Second Line 8 7 50s12 OUR CROWN LAW NZ 121 ROCKET BEEBEE NZ 9 12514 FAIR BLAZING NZ 9.30 Q4 1760m. $8000. 3yo 3MA0 Only RBD Mobile B A Sarina Ft 5.50 B J Hewitt Ft 8.00 D R Hancock Ft 5.50 G W Bennett Ft 26.00 J G Proctor Ft 21.00 J R Ponsonby Ft 7.00 D J Binskin Ft 21.00 G J Fitzpatrick Ft ★5.00 A M Siejka (C) Ft 5.50 10 2s811 COMMANDER CULLEN NZ (ODM) D W Jack Ft 7.00 Craig’s call: ROCKET BEEBEE (8) has won two of his three starts and should prove hard to beat again despite rising in class. He dashed home in a slick final quarter to win at Menangle last time. OUR CROWN LAW (7) led, looked beaten at the 400m but kicked back and was first past the post before being relegated to second via protest at Newcastle last week. He is a proven feature race winner at Harold Park so is worth consideration. DUCHESS OF DUBAI (5) is rising in class on her past two victories but is a durable filly and is capable of taking the next step forward. FAIR BLAZING (9) ran fourth in a strong race at Harold Park last week and is a place possibility from her trailing draw.

He has been placed in all of his nine starts (6 wins) since coming from New Zealand and is very strong. THE WILD STORM (3) led throughout and won effortlessly on his Australian debut at Newcastle. This race is tougher but he should find the lead again. MY MACKADOO (2) hasn’t finished further back than fourth at his past eight starts and is drawn to run his usual honest race. ALBERTS CHARM (4) gets into this race with a concession claim and is a minor place possibility. CASINO FIGHTER (6) is widely drawn but is also worth thought in multiple combinations.
